Pioneering computer scientist Dennis Ritchie has passed away at the age of 70. Ritchie was a father of both the Unix operating system and the C programming language.

While unknown to many, his tremendous contribution to technology, both directly and indirectly has affected the lives of most people in the world. Virtually all software in use today from web servers through to your phone and even your microwave can be traced back to his work.
